    Open To Public

    Powderhorn Mountain Resort is located 45 minutes east of Grand Junction, Colorado on the Grand Mesa. The area has a variety of ski terrain such as groomers, bumps, glades, and boulder fields. Powderhorn is unique among Colorado ski resorts because of its terrain and climate. Powderhorn sits on the side of one of the world's largest flattop mountains, or mesas, rather than in a mountain canyon as many ski areas do, which allows for views extending more than 20 miles across the desert below. The climate at Powderhorn's high desert location—east of Grand Junction, Colorado and slightly north and east of Colorado National Monument—produces dry, powder snow.
